A common concern regarding cane furniture
One of the key concerns of cane furniture is that wood is prone to termite attack. So, how to keep it in good condition? One of the easiest ways to keep it in good condition is by adding wood preservatives. While buying furniture, you must check if the furniture is pre-treated; if yes, then you don’t have to worry about termite infestation; if not, then you can apply it yourself or seek the assistance of a professional to do the same. Remember, merely painting the cane furniture won’t keep it protected. Its treatment with a wood preservative is paramount.
